Pea, Cascadia Bush Snap
Reviews (1)  WRITE A REVIEW

Pisum sativum

Sweet, crispy edible pods filled with 5-6 scrumptious peas follow pretty white flowers on this disease resistant snap pea from Oregon State University. Trellising these short vines is optional, but makes it easier to harvest. Plant for spring or fall harvest.

Start From Seed: Detailed instructions for direct seeding, or starting seeds indoors and transplanting.
Peas are most often direct seeded, but can be transplanted if soil is too wet and cold, and if you are careful not to disturb the roots. Inoculate seed with Rhizobium bacteria prior to planting for optimum Nitrogen fertility. Direct seed in spring 2-4 weeks before the last frost. For a fall crop, seed 8-12 weeks before the first fall frost. Seeds will germinate at soil temperatures as low as 45°F, but sprout more quickly between 60–75°F. Plant seeds 1 inch deep, 1 seed every 1-3 inches, allowing 24-36 inches between rows. To start indoors, fill 2-4 inch pots with a sterile seed starting mix. Plant 2-4 seeds per pot, ½ to 1 inch deep. Do not thin. Harden seedlings for 7-10 days before transplanting out 2-4 weeks before the last spring frost. Carefully plant out each pot 4-6 inches apart without disturbing roots of grouped seedlings.
Growing Conditions: Growing seasons, soil types, water and fertility requirements.
Peas are a cold hardy crop, and need a cool growing season to succeed. They prefer well drained soils with a pH between 6.0-7.0. Innoculate peas with Rhizobium bacteria to stimulate nitrogen fixation for improved yield and soil fertility. Even short-vined ‘bush’ varieties benefit from trellising, increasing yield and making them easier to harvest.
Pest Prevention: Organic solutions to common problems.
Peas are susceptible to various soilborne seed and seedling rots as well as foliar diseases such as Ascochyta Blight and Powdery Mildew. Choose mildew resistant varieties for fall sowings (see variety descriptions). Avoid overhead irrigation, trellis and increase plant spacing to maximize airflow, practice crop rotations, and compost crop debris to manage these and other diseases. Heavy thrips pressure may be controlled by use of row covers or OMRI-approved Spinosad sprays. See our merchandise section for related products.
Harvest: Is it ready yet? When to harvest and how to store your garden produce.
Harvest shell peas when the pods are plump and full. Harvest snap peas when the pods are thick and crispy and the peas have filled out inside the pod. Harvest snow peas when they reach a desirable size. Harvest all types frequently to encourage continuous production. Store in the refrigerator. Peas freeze well for long storage.

Grew easy

Each plant are small but produces a good amount of pods. Very sweet. My one year old last summer ate almost 2 entire plants within 20 mins of watering my other plants. There that good. Almost like candy. They were easy to grow too with not too much water. And did good in cold weather. I'm from where it randomly snows in April/may.
